As per section 2C of the OS X EULA (emphasis added): "If you have purchased an Upgrade for Mac OS X Leopard license, then subject to the terms and conditions of this License, you are granted a limited non-exclusive license to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-branded computer as long as that computer has a properly licensed copy of Mac OS X Leopard already installed on it."

It's not that you found "countless wrong information"...you may have found information that may be in conflict with the Apple EULA statement that "Vansmith" quoted in the post above.

The bottom line is to be in compliance with the Apple EULA:

1. If you have an original retail copy of Leopard, or the grey/silver "recovery" disks that came with your computer (if it's a newer computer that came with 10.5 on the recovery disks)...than all you need it the $29 dollar Snow Leopard update disk.

2. If you do not have any original Leopard install disks...then you're supposed to purchase the Mac Box Set for $169 to upgrade to Snow Leopard.

Hope this helps,

- Nick

I think Tiger is still a good OS for any Mac, though still I prefer Leopard and Snow Leopard (thought the problems I've been reading about here on SL is beginning to annoy me a little).

So in theory I can by the 29$ disk and not the $170 set.

bam

$29 Snow Leopard retail disc will install over Tiger

Quote:
As many have speculated, Apple has added no technical limitations to the install process to prevent the $29 standard Snow Leopard disc from installing on a Mac running Tiger. The information was confirmed in an early review of Snow Leopard by All Things Digital's Walt Mossberg published late last night. "Apple concedes that the $29 Snow Leopard upgrade will work properly on these Tiger-equipped Macs, so you can save the extra $140" over the Mac Box Set, Mossberg wrote.

It's against Apples EULA, the same EULA that just got rulled on in court with Apple Vs Phystar and Apple won that part of the lawsuit.

That is all that we will say on the matter, it's against Apples EULA.

Ethics aside, you can do whatever you want. You may even do so and not be sorry.
But, you are sorry, in another sense, if you do. And, if you get caught, you will be in the other sense.
